Is this part of the steam engine from The Pegasus?
Is this part of the steam engine from The Pegasus?
'On 20th July 1843, shortly after midnight and with good weather conditions, Pegasus SS (Captain Alexander Miller), struck the jagged Goldstone Rock due to navigational negligence. After reversing the engines and heading for the shore, less than 1 mile away, she went down by the head, shortly after 1 a.m. Out of 41 passengers and 16 crew, only 6 survived.' LinkExternal link
The Goldstone is a large rock lying out in exposed open water, between Lindisfarne and the Farne Islands, some distance from the Goswick Sands which are the other side of Holy Island.
There have been many wrecks on this coast so the link may be wishful thinking!

LinkExternal link mentions this wreck and SS Werner Kunstmann LinkExternal link a few hundred metres away.
Thanks to Tuppence for prompting this investigation.
Chris Allen, an expert on steamships, see his LinkExternal link says
'That is almost certainly not the engine of an 1840s paddle steamer. This is a later design of inverted vertical engine that would always be associated with a screw shaft at the bottom of the hull.' Thanks Chris for this information.
